Description of problem:
I can see the request for the ppd listed in the cups access log:
xxx - - [30/Jun/2005:14:28:37 -0500] "GET /ppd/xxxxx.ppd HTTP/1.1" 200 38064
The ppd request succeeds with a status of 200. I do not understand why libgnomecups thinks the request fails when a status of 200 means success.
The cups printers work correctly and all printer options are available when used when used from openoffice.org-1.9.112-1.1.0.fc4. They also work correctly under KDE.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gedit, evince, or evolution from command line
2. Select File | Print
3. Watch errors appear
Actual Results: WARNING **: failed request with status 200
appeared for each defined cups printer and "Generic Postscript" was selected as default printer. No printer specific options are available.
Expected Results: 1. PPD requests should not fail with a status of 200
2. Printer specific options should be available in print dialog
3. Correct default printer should be selected
I too had the same problem. After much digging around I found that a network
rework had left my /etc/hosts file in a bit of a state. Altering the entery for
the local host to be:
127.0.0.1 myname.mydomain localhost
fixed it for me. It must be to do with the default network assumptions for CUPS.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
The original summary for this bug was longer than 255 characters, and so it was truncated when Bugzilla was upgraded. The original summary was:
When selecting File|Print in a GNOME program using libgnomeprint (e.g., evince, gedit, evolution) the follwing message is printed for each printer defined in CUPS: WARNING **: failed request with status 200. Generic POstscript appears in the printer selection dialog instead of the correct default printer. All printers are still listed and documents can be printed by selecting a printer but no printer specific options are available.
